Long Description:
[DE]

Drumlins (irisch/gälisch: Höhenrücken) sind längliche Hügel mit einem tropfenförmigen Grundriss. Die Hügel entstanden durch die Fließbewegung von Gletschern während der Eiszeit, wobei die Längsausrichtung der Fließrichtung des Gletschern entspricht. Die Drumlins bestehen aus Schotter oder Moränenmaterial, welches der Gletscher unter seinen Eis mitgeführt hat. In den Senken zwischen den Hügeln bildeten sich oft Seen, die langsam vermooren oder schon verlandet sind. Der Hegratsriedsee ist hier ein Beispiel für einen immer noch intakten See zwischen den Drumlins, die die Landschaft zwischen Forggensee und Bannwaldsee prägen.

[EN]

Drumlin (Irish / Gaelic ridge) are elongated hills with a teardrop-shaped floor plan. The hills formed by the flow movement of glaciers during the Ice Age, the longitudinal direction corresponds to the flow direction of glaciers. The drumlins are made of gravel or moraine, which has carried the glacier ice beneath his. In the valleys between the hills were often lakes, vermooren slowly or have been silted up. The Hegratsriedsee here is an example of a still intact lake between the drumlins that are shaping the landscape and between Forggensee Bannwaldsee.
